    Hi!
    My name is Kaitlyn and I will be getting chicks the end of April and the coop tomorrow. I have been wanting chicks forever but have finally convinced my husband. We are only getting 5 just incase 1 is a rooster. We live in NH any got golden laced Wyandottes and buff orpingtons. I’m so excited!!! I’m looking for ideas of plants to plant around the outside of the coop for privacy from neighbors.

    Hi Kaitlyn congratulations on your new chicks. A nice book to read about plants around your chickens is 'Fresh Eggs Daily' by Lisa Steele. She provides a nice list of easy things to plant that you and your chickens will enjoy. Happy chicken keeping to you..... :ya
